    The number of people affected by the mandate is small, a few percent. Most without insurance would go on free medicaid. STILL cheaper than ER care in the long run...

    What they mean is that premiums would jump for everyone who has insurance because ObamaCare requires insurance companies to insure all comers. And that means those who have been excluded due to "pre-existing conditions" would jump in the pool, driving up outlays, which drives up premiums for everyone who has insurance.

    So to say the death of the mandate would not be the death of ObamaCare is a bit of a joke, really.

    No more than they have been under BOOOSh and recently ANYWAY. You are DUPED. The savings have not begun yet, just the end of Insurers scams and injustices...

    People who don't want to pay for insurance are FREELOADERS, and under ACA, STUPID. Obama is RIGHT. The mandate is just a perfect distraction for Pubs to fear monger the dupes about. Works GREAT!!

    If the insurance mandate gets killed it is Obama's way out, he really supports the medical industry not individuals.

    He supports BOTH, obviously. Our nonsystem is ridiculously expensive, allows insurers to drop people on technicalities if they get sick, turn down people who are sick or charge them obscene amounts, has NO COST controls, is a GD Pubscam for the greedy corporations, and ruins our global competitiveness.
    ACA is a REPUBLICAN PLAN, or so they say, the lying bought off AZZHOLES. Pub dupes! Hoping for your recovery.

    But O campaigned against the mandate while Hillary was for it in 2008 and then O signed the bill that contains the mandate....now trying to argue for the mandate as a tax.

    Obama PERSONNALLY isn't doing much LOL. The mandate DOES make the transition easier and less expensive, but obviously more controversial, thanks to lying, fear mongering, bought off Pubs....
